Cash crunch closing WHO clinics in Sudan war zones

A cash crunch could force the WHO to close more facilities in Sudan, leaving some 323,000 women of child-bearing age and children under five with no access to health careEleven clinics have already been shut in Darfur, Blue Nile and South Kordofan where years of fighting between government troops and black African rebels has forced tens of thousands of people to flee their homes. As an acute cash crunch worsens and with the world’s eyes focused on other conflicts such as Syria, another 49 facilities in these regions are also at risk, the WHO head in Sudan, Naeema al-Gasseer, told AFP. “We don’t have enough funds to continue supporting clinics in remote areas that provide people with health services,” Gasseer said.
